This was the reconstruction of an old school and addition of a new building connected to the old building. The reconstruction had to follow the instructions of conservationists and the strongly waterlogged building was thus almost returned to its original condition. We used chemical injection, renovation plasters, etc. and the original decorative elements were added and a silicate plaster was used on the façade.  Even the internal premises were renovated to their original state including stucco decorations. The only newly added feature was a lift enabling disabled students to study at the school. The annex building was made of traditional masonry, but it was built in a contemporary design. Despite this fact, its sensitive connection to the old building makes the structure compact and architectonically balanced as a whole. The new building houses a new state-of-the-art kitchen and a canteen which originally used to be located in an unsuitable independent building on the other side of the street. When the construction had been completed, this building was demolished in the framework of this contract. The project also included landscaping and fencing of the school premises. A small football pitch, an athletic oval and a tennis court were then built on originally waterlogged land which had been drained. Artificial outdoor surfaces which were starting to appear at that time were selected with regards to the terrain which was wet all-year-round, the vicinity of a brook and their easy maintenance. These surfaces subsequently proved themselves in a yearlong operation.
